Abstract : The dual Information Operations Team Training (IOTT) and Information Operations Training Aid (IOTA) project was a joint 711th HPW/RHA and RHC effort designed to develop tools for Information Operations (IO) training support. The IOTT task established a set of IO practitioner-vetted Mission Essential Competencies, standardization and evaluation techniques for the Information Warfare Aggressor Squadron (IWAS) flights and recommendations for generating a MEC-based standardization and evaluation task. The IOTA task developed and evaluated the usability and usefulness of a prototype rich client Influence Operations Training Aid (IFOTA) for use in the 39th Information Operations Schoolhouse's introductory and advanced IO planning courses. IFOTA, which currently supports psychological operations (PSYOP), military deception (MD), operations security (OPSEC), public affairs (PA), and counterintelligence (CI), provides a structured planning environment for developing and deconflicting IO course of action (COA) recommendations and developing associated briefings.
